Welcome to TLS Nursery!
Welcome to TLS Nursery!
Here we nurture all of the newborn stories - published in the last 30 days or so - that we love! Everything in our nursery has been read and approved by a few - or a lot - of the TLS ladies, and we think you'll enjoy cuddling up to these babies as well.
As ever, there are some incredible stories to check out this month.
Remember to leave these lovely ladies some love, and let them know TLS sent you!
The Consequence of Miracles by Travis Birkenstock
Sometimes, the miracles we plead for come at a terrible price. AH, dark subject matter.
Hollywood by allihavetodoisdream
"She's Audrey Hepburn, and he's Cary Grant. She's Marilyn, and he's James Dean. She's timeless elegance, and he's old grace. She's searching, and he's already found, already taken. She's sixteen. And he's twenty-seven. But that doesn't matter. Not to a girl in love. Nothing matters, then." Edward & Bella in the definition of a forbidden relationship.
Hearts Desire (Ceanothus gloriosus) by daisyandphoebe
Bella's life, predictable and streaked with poor timing, can use a re-landscape. The decision to make some changes brings with it an old friend. The boy who had pulled up a chair, opened a sketch pad, and infiltrated her mind for four years stands, now a man, behind her screen. But inviting him in is not as simple as opening the door.
Indelible by bannerday
Some experiences, some people, stick with you forever, leaving their mark on your memories. You can't escape what they meant to you and you can't re-write the past. It's indelible. But the future isn't set in stone…it's yours to write. A story about forks in the road of life and a past with a future. AH
Volunteer 13 by Edward’s Eternal
A favour for a friend. A few minutes of her life. Kiss a stranger and see what happens. "Easy," Rose insisted. "Kiss him and walk away." Will it be that simple?
Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear by TheFicChick
"It's the first time I realize that for all of the significance boy-Edward holds in my past, man-Edward is a stranger to me. The thought is at once liberating and heartbreaking, and I don't know what to do with it: how do you forgive someone who no longer exists? How do you hold a man accountable for a boy's carelessness?"
the bitter, the sweet by Rochelle Allison
Bella's 24. She's got a career she loves, close family & friends, and a little girl she loves more than anything. She doesn't need anything more, but sometimes she sure wants it, and when Edward shows up he'll either upset the balance or make everything sweeter. A WitFit.
Barely Breathing by chocaholic123
A tortured professor consumed by a secret. A quiet student who catches his eye. He's barely existing. She's young and innocent. When she enters his hellish world, it shifts…again. AH. Short drabblish chapters from WitFit prompts.
Buried by ericastwilight
His reality was made of nightmares. She was plagued by them. Will she conquer her fears in time? Can he protect her?
Balançoire by gemini13me
"Perfect balance is like a razor's edge; it can be found only in the Self." - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
Speed Dating by samekraemer
When Bella Swan and her closest friends agreed to accompany Angela to a speed-dating event, they were skeptical. That was until a cute bartender stepped up and mesmerized Bella more than she'd ever anticipated. He was gorgeous, and she was smitten. Rated M. Language, lemons, and the rest. (Thank you SunflowerFran). Canon couples. Just read.
How To Tame A Player by mystique-jewled
Masen University. Home to the nation's best science program, the western seaboard's largest electron microscope, and the world's biggest womanizer. I'm Bella Swan, and this is where I learned How To Tame A Player.
A Scottish Tale by For3ver Immortal
A Scottish laird finds himself embroiled in the life of a girl who's beauty is sung throughout the highlands, but little does he know that she is not as feeble as she looks.
Seven Forty-Three by CullensTwiMistress
Maps dictate where we go, but they don't always take us home. City subway tunnels and dim street lights converge, bringing two people infinitely closer. Will a chance meeting lead them to forever? Maybe it was only a matter of time. Collaboration with Maplestyle. Romance; BxE; Rated M.
Abandoned Heart by kitchmill
I wanted to push him away, to tell him to just go now, because I was a battle he'd never win.
